Evaluation of Errors in Transition from the Global Geocentric Co-ordinate System ПЗ-90.11 to the other Reference Co-ordinate Systems to Take them into Account in the Algorithms of the Receiving Satellite Navigation Equipment. V. V. Gavrilov, Y. S. Dubinko. – Navigation and Hydrography. – 2017. – No. 49. – Р. 21–31.

The co-ordinate basis of the Russian Federation is presented as a reference co-ordinate system built as a geocentric geodetic network. The position of the determined points on the surface of the Earth relative to the co-ordinate basis can be obtained in the form of the spatial rectangular or geodetic co-ordinates or in the form of the planimetric rectangular co-ordinates and altitudes. As the 1990 Earth Parameters introduced in 1990 differ from ПЗ – 90, ПЗ – 90.02 and others used previously, it is necessary to determine the volume of additional design of the satellite navigation receiver. For this aim, the following points are treated:

 – The structure of the ephemerides information transmitted by the navigation satellite equipment as applied to ПЗ – 90.11 is considered.

 – The algorithms to calculate of the user co-ordinates and take corrections to the co-ordinates into account when passing to another reference ellipsoid (datum) are determined.

 – The errors in co-ordinates recalculation from ПЗ – 90.11 to ПСС and take them into account in the other co-ordinate systems are evaluated.

Key words: transformation of geocentric co-ordinates, system of co-ordinates, clements of transformation, formulas of transformation, satellite navigation systems (SNS).

Soloshchev, A. A. Yakushev, S. A. Yaroshenko, V. P. Lenkov, Y. N. Morgunov. – Navigation and Hydrography. – 2017. – No. 49. – Р. 46–50.

The possible ways to increase the accuracy of determining the position co-ordinates and speed of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) by long-range hydroacoustic navigation system using the complex wide-band sounding signals are considered. It is shown that to increase the accuracy of fixing the position and speed of AUV, it is necessary to know the velocity of hydroacoustic signal along the way between the transmitter and receiver, to use the reference generators corrected by the data of the global navigation satellite systems GLONASS/GPS in onboard receiver and transmitter and to use the extremely correlation methods of processing the measured range.

Key words: AUV, GLONASS, GPS, velocity of sound in the water, hydroacoustic navigation network.

Problems of Determining the Optimum Relationship between the Pollution Levels of the Oceans and Atmosphere. H. G. Asadov, S. A. Askerova. – Navigation and Hydrography. – 2017. – No. 49. – Р. 79–83.

The problem of calculating the mutual correlation function between the degree of pollution of the ocean and atmosphere ecosystems by some pollutant in increasing time intervals, taking into account the influence of the first ecosystem on the state of the second system, is formulated and solved. It is accepted that due to assimilation processes in the water medium, part of the pollutants in the ocean waters is not involved in the correlation relationship. The method of calculation of the assimilation capacity of the water areas for the case of limited summary pollution coming to the first ecosystem during all intervals, is optimized. It is shown that with increasing length of the considered intervals, the degree of correlation of pollution levels in considered ecosystems is increased.

Key words: correlation, assimilation, ecosystem, optimization, pollution, ocean, atmosphere.

Method of Constructing the Uniformly Distributed in Space-Time Points of Hydrometeorologic Observations Characteristics. Y. N. Zhukov – Navigation and Hydrography. – 2017. – No. 49. – Р. 84–93.

A new method of determining the most uniform points of time-space-time co-ordinates obtained when measuring the hydrometeorologic characteristics is proposed.
